"A rare sake. One of the hardest junmai daiginjo to find."


Hiroki Brewery's elegant junmai daiginjo sake is seldom available outside its local Fukushima store, which is regarded as the peak of a harmoniously-balanced, pure sake experience. This impeccably smooth junmai daiginjo bears heavenly apple and pear notes that bring to life the deep, complex flavour profile of this junmai daiginjo, named after the refreshing dewy mists found high among the region's mountains. With its umami texture of 50% polished, pure, unrefined rice and its silkier mouthfeel of 40% polished rice koji blend, this premium sake is a wonderfully bracing and delicate sake that is made from Japan's finest Yamadanishiki rice. Over the course of two years, Hiroki Brewery has carefully merged the exquisite qualities of both brewing methods to create a truly exquisite taste. Best served chilled.

The Hiroki Brewery

The Hiroki Sake Brewery was founded in the Bunsei era (1804-1830) of the late Edo period in a prosperous post town along the Echigo Kaido, which connects Aizu and Echigo.

At first, the brewery faced difficult times and contemplated going out of business. However, under the new direction of Kenji Hiroki, the sake was improved greatly. In 1996, Kenji Hiroki and his mother started making sake without any employees. The shop began selling unfiltered and unprocessed sake, which became very popular. They were so popular that the mother of one of the brewery's employees had to hand-write the labels because there wasn't enough time for printing them.


Today, it has become one of the hardest sake to find and is often referred to as phantom sake.
